If you missed our street party at the Shelly’s sign yesterday then you missed a wonderful event. Thanks to Ann Daskal the organizer, a good number of hard-working volunteers, and a helping hand from the rain which stayed away until after we had cleared up, this was a street party to remember.
We had music from the always excellent Razzmajazz, vintage cars, lemonade, cake a-plenty, childrens crafts, history tours by Bruce Macdonald, a scavenger hunt and, of course, the dedication of our new plaque about the Shelly’s sign with an excellent short speech by Michael Kluckner. We had a “What is This?” table filled with intriguing objects from the past, and an “Ask the Expert” table where there was lots of talk about neighbourhood history and the current Community Plan.
We want to offer our grateful thanks to the sponsors who helped fund the event, supply goods and equipment and/or supplied prizes for the various events. These include:
- Hasting North Community Partners Group
- Britannia Community Centre
- Via Tevere
- Turks Cafe
- Carnegie Community Centre
- Dana Cromie
- In the House
- Fratelli Bakery
